Baby Archer

Gig Harbor, WA

A few years ago I shot newborn photos for the Chang Family when their daughter Madeleine was born. Julia and Lee just welcomed their third child, Archer to the family a little less than a month ago! So I took a trip to their home in Gig Harbor to photograph Archer and their family while relatives were visiting. I had such a fun time catching up, seeing the growth of their kids and meeting little Archer! I just L-O-V-E newborns! There is nothing like a fresh baby and I was so privileged be part of their day last week. Welcome to the world baby Archer!

Ephraim’s 2 Month Photos

Seattle, WA

Little E is now TWO months old! He has the biggest toothless grin and loves to laugh at mommy & daddy. He is very alert, interatcive and loves listening to us read and talk to him. He’s not much of a crier unless he’s hungry or wants to fall asleep and needs an extra cuddle to get cozy. Ephraim has also has surprised us by already sleeping through the night! Trevor and I are very thankful for this little man who brings us much joy!

Brieske’s Getting Ready

Tacoma, Wa

Some of my favorite moments are when the bride and groom are getting ready for the big day. This time of the day is typically more relaxed and the moments between family and bridal party are precious.

“Marriage is a mosaic you build with your spouse. Millions of tiny moments that create your love story.” – Jennifer Smith. Such peace and happiness flooded Tom and Kaitlyn this morning! Here is a start of the beautiful picture that they are continuing to build upon.

Layla Turns One

Sweet Layla turns ONE at the end of this month! Her parents gave her a big cupcake that she got to have all by herself! I love watching the curiosity, suspicion and joy as these littles figure out what to do with their cake. Happy Birthday Layla!

Butela Family

Tacoma, WA

Sometimes you have to get a good cry out, create a few silly faces, try and eat a few rocks, be bribed by your mom that you’ll have a yummy treat afterwards if you behave, and have a good run around with your siblings before you can try and sit down to get your photo taken. However, the honest photos of what life looks like with all of you, are always the better than a posed one. Anderson, Quinn & Charlie are all their own personalities and it was so fun to see them each express themselves during this shoot!

Schallert Family

Seattle, WA

You don’t choose your family. They are God’s gift to you, as you are to them. – Desmond Tutu.

Family is one of the most precious things in this world and the gift of being together is a joy to watch. The Schallert family ventured to Seattle this past week for a family reunion. Four sets of families from across the country from various states came to see each other. It was fun to see old friends, Dianne and Steve, who have been serving in South Africa for a few years with their adorable kids and are now back in Kona, Hawaii. Blessings to you all as you enjoy your family vacation! Thanks for letting me capture some of your day in Sodo. I hope you made fabulous memories together as you explored our beautiful city and State and go back refreshed and full of joy as you celebrated being together.
